Carpenters, The – Superstar

Today’s artists were an American vocal and instrumental duo, consisting of siblings from Downey, California.

During a period in the 1970s when louder and wilder rock was in great demand, they produced a distinctively soft musical style that made them among the best-selling music artists of all time.

Their melodic pop produced a record-breaking run of hit recordings on the American Top 40 and Adult Contemporary charts, and they became leading sellers in the soft rock, easy listening and adult contemporary genres. They had three No. 1 singles and five No. 2 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 and fifteen No. 1 hits on the Adult Contemporary chart. In addition, they had twelve top 10 singles (including their No. 1 hits). To date, their album and single sales total more than 100 million units

During their 14-year career, they recorded 11 albums, thirty-one singles, five television specials, and a short-lived television series. They toured in the United States, the United Kingdom, Japan, Australia, the Netherlands and Belgium.

Their recording career ended with the sister’s death in 1983 at age 32 from heart failure following complications of anorexia nervosa. Extensive news coverage of the circumstances surrounding her death increased public awareness of the consequences of eating disorders.

They released 30 singles during their career. Of the thirty, ten were RIAA certified Gold and twenty-two peaked in the top 10 on the Adult Contemporary chart. In addition, they also had ten albums from 1969–1983. Five of the albums contained two or more top 20 hits on the Billboard Hot 100.

And Your Mystery Lyrics were:

“But you’re not really here,
It’s just the radio…”
